The solution is much simpler than that.
Don't use the Archive Mail funtion to do your archiving, since that
will contain every spam and virus you receive... Use the Non Spam
Actions instead. Add "store" to that one, and presto, you will get an
"archive" in the quarantine (in the nonspam subdirectory/each day).
Add in MailWatch and you have a very simple and elegant solution;-).
